Todd Frazier's new Mets teammates are excited about the acqusition of the third baseman, who agreed to a two-year deal worth $17 million earlier this week.
Amed Rosario, who will share the left side of the infield with Frazier, is eager to learn from him.
"I feel really good because he's a veteran guy and I can learn a lot from him," Rosario said, according to the NY Daily News. "I'm probably going to pick his brain out."
"I think he's a solid player both offensively and defensively," catcher Travis d'Arnaud told the Daily News about Frazier. "He's been a solid player for his whole career and I think him playing in his hometown in New York is going to fire him up and he'll be amped up every single game."
Meanwhile, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told the NY Post that Frazier is a "perfect fit" for the team.
Frazier, who turns 32 years old on Feb. 12, joins the Mets after spending the second half of last season with the Yankees.
He hit .213/.344/.428 with 27 HR in 147 games for the Yankees and White Sox in 2017, while being worth 10 DRS (defensive runs saved) at third base.
Frazier is a career .245/.321/.459 hitter who has averaged 30 HR per 162 games.
Free agent 3B Mike Moustakas, who was also on the Mets' radar, hit .272/.314/.521 with 38 HR in 148 games in 2017, while being worth -8 DRS at third base.
The 29-year-old Moustakas is a career .251/.305/.425 hitter who has averaged 23 HR per 162 games.
